Year 11 Guidance Evening


Year 11 Guidance Evening – Tuesday 15th October 2019

This event is open from 5.00pm – 7.00pm, doors will open from 4.30pm, please arrive promptly for Theatre Presentations as follows: W Band - 5.00pm - H Band - 6.00pm.

As you are aware, Year 11 will be the most important year of your child’s life so far. The vast majority of pupils in the year group are focused, on task and understand that they have to put in 100% effort over the coming months. At Winifred Holtby Academy we believe that it is very beneficial for parents and carers to have a good understanding of what is expected during Year 11. We believe that with support and guidance at home, as well as in the Academy, each pupil will reach their maximum potential. With this in mind, I would like to invite you and your child to attend the Winifred Holtby Academy Year 11 Guidance Evening.

The purpose of the event is to directly increase parental involvement in revision, study and learning, giving parents and carers a better understanding of what will happen during Year 11. This will ensure parents and carers are able to support revision at home, so that all Year 11 pupils can succeed.

The evening will consist of the following:

  • Welcome in The Theatre by Mr Brown, Headteacher

  • Practical Tips – Supporting revision at home by Mr C Dorsett

  • Year 11 Information

  • A range of Revision Guides will be available to purchase (cash only at this event)

  • A wide range of Businesses/Providers and Year 11 Teaching Staff will be available to discuss a range of Post 16 opportunities in the Orangery and the Forum

A crèche will be available on the evening should you require a place for younger siblings.

I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 15th October.

Mr Dorsett
